Fairy Tale: Sleeping Beauty. Sorry about the longer length of this post, but to quote Mark Twain, “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.” I have to admit that at first, I wasn’t all that into this book.

  Okay, so I have decided to start giving my reviews ratings (see right hand side of blog to get the guidelines for these ratings). So I’ll start with Spindle’s End! I picked up this book after reading Beauty earlier this year. I really enjoyed Beauty, and I loved the way McKinley retold the fairy-tale. So, I decided to give Spindle’s End a go.   Spindle's End is the first book I've read by Robin McKinley since Deerskin. I prefer it to Deerskin, but I also prefer The Blue Sword to Spindle's End. Like Deerskin, Spindle's End is the retelling of a fairy tale. This time around, it's about Sleeping Beauty. McKinley takes all sorts of liberties with the tale.4/5.

The Book and the Spindle is an excellent choice for travelers visiting Rock Hill, offering a charming environment alongside many helpful amenities designed to enhance your stay. Nearby landmarks such as Fountain Park ( mi) and Epiphany Lutheran Church ( mi) make The Book and the Spindle a great place to stay when visiting Rock Hill/5(6).
